The blogger would appreciate receiving substantive comments on his posts, including corrections and disagreements.

Over the last half of the year this blogger was preoccupied with selling his suburban town house, buying and remodeling a downtown condo and moving. In this period he also was very discouraged about U.S. political developments. As a result, he was unable to write any posts after September 5th. In 2014 he plans to gradually resume his blogging.

As a retired lawyer and adjunct law professor, Duane W. Krohnke has developed strong interests in U.S. and international law, politics and history. He also is a Christian and an active member of Minneapolis’ Westminster Presbyterian Church. His blog draws from these and other interests. He delights in the writing freedom of blogging that does not follow a preordained logical structure. The ex post facto logical organization of the posts and comments is set forth in the continually being revised “List of Posts and Comments–Topical” in the Pages section on the right side of the blog.

One thought on “Report for dwkcommentaries–-2013”

  1. I have just finished reading all your writing listed here. I truly thank you for providing some insight as to what our ancestors went through and some of the contributions they made towards the freedoms so many of us now take for granted. I also thank you so much for the research you did in finding out just what the Brown family did during those times. My Great (x5) Grandfather was Capt. Benjamin Brown, brother to Perley Brown.
